Kay Because I have used it for years and it has been marvellous but something has gone wrong with my copy and I need it for my 30000 names I have recorded.

Guest Will PAF 5.2 accept Gedcom files createded in PAF 4 and PAF 5.1? If someone can answer this question, it will help me make up my mind about which program to get.

Guest When you downloaded this program, did it change your computer? It asks if it can make changes to my computer. I just bought my computer and don't want to have problems right off the start! I Loved PAF 5.1 and use it all the time. I wanted to download it to the new computer so I could continue using the program, but have reservations. What has your experience been with downloading the program?

Guest PAF 5.2 is one the best programs I have used. Better than Ancestry or FTM, and I am surprised that a newer version wasn't released from the IDS Church Family History center. AQ along with the What The Genealogist Wanted made a great program.
